Council pay rise wrangle sparked

Aberdeen City Council has come under fire for setting salaries of new senior management posts about 10% higher than the outgoing jobs.

The local authority rubber-stamped proposals to cut the number of service managers from 25 to 16.

Labour group leader Barney Crockett said it was unfair amid possible major job cuts.

But council deputy leader Kevin Stewart said it would help save millions of pounds to go back into public service.
